Great experience. If you plan to take Flamenco Lessons, consider taking the half intensive Spanish. If no dance, go for the whole intensive. Plan to study.

Has anyone stayed at the private apartment? I am considering if it is worth it to 'splurge' for the special apartment - looks like it has nice views of the Alhambra. Is it worth it? Thanks!!
